    Speculating or fantasizing?

    The most doable figures from a little to no sculpting stand point IMO are

    Gyro Viper
    Wild Boar
    Rumbler
    Tan Clutch
    Hardball
    Wildcard
    Windmill (arah colors)
    TF Roadblock
    TF Tripwire
    Super Trooper
    Backblast
    Long Range
    Windchill
    SM Footloose
    SM Mutt
    There's also the Fridge and the V3 & V4 Sgt. Slaughters but that's a pipe dream.
    and anything 90's onward are not worth it.

    Given it's likely to be the last series, hopefully the focus for FSS8 is one of filling the holes in the Modern Era series of 3.75" figures.

    Members might be willing to accept a higher price (I certainly would) if it results in closing the loop on a number of key missing figures like Hardball, Fast Draw, Recoil, Backblast, Downtown, Lightfoot, Payload, dress blues Gung-Ho, Blizzard, Hydro-, Astro-, v1 Toxo-, and v1 Motor-Viper, TARGAT, and the Cobra La Royal Guard and Golobulus.

    And as a result, Modern Era collections would finally be a true homage for the classic ARAH series up through the Movie era without lacking key figures from the series that arrived in the '80s or having to supplement with o-ring figures.

    How cool would this lineup be for the farewell send-off?



    Yep, it's slightly more than 13 figures but perhaps a couple could be delivered via JoeCon rather than in FSS8. A Cobra La pack with Golobulus and two Royal Guards perhaps? Or perhaps FSS8 can include a couple extra slots since it's the last one.

    I really hope Hasbro and the Club find a way to continue the relationship past FSS8 and we can continue to receive FSS series that mix classic figures and newer '90s/'00s figures/repaints, etc. But if this is the end of the line, I would urge the Club to consider covering the essentials before doing more repaints and later-years figures.

    Honestly, I'd pay close to four-figures to have that lineup above delivered in 2018.

    I just signed up to the Club as I only started collecting ME two months ago, on a nostalgia kick. Here's the growing collection as of last week. I'm late to the party, but despite hearing the Club is almost done, I'm trying to remain hopeful that we'll be able to add to it the remaining ARAH figures we loved from our childhood in the '80s, now in Modern Era form.

    Cheers.

    A truer statement has never been written. Finish 1987, 1988, 1989 as best as the Club can...

    It's possibly the selections are already made when they got Hasbro approval for another wave. I'll list a few specific ones I want most anyway, and in general I want as many 80s-94 ARAH remakes as possible.

    Top wants:
    Recoil
    Blizzard
    Bulletproof
    Steamroller
    Capt Grid Iron
    Backblast
    Downtown
    Payload
    looking for:
    vintage Capt Grid Iron helmet and football grenades
    vintage Backblast v1 missile launcher
    DG Storm Shadow Bow (or similar mold in black)

    Anything not released from the Concept vault would be good. Add Dogfight, Hardball, Dress Blues Gung-Ho, Lightfoot and Hydro-Viper and I'll be ok with it for the most part.
